Resource Spotlight

This month we are featuring resources by Andy Stanley.  Andy is a pastor, communicator, author and founder of North Point Ministries, Inc., with three campuses in the Atlanta area, at which 20,000 adults attend worship each Sunday. If you have never experienced any of Andy’s DVD studies, you’re in for a treat!

Christian: It’s Not What You Think – 
In this study you will learn what one word should be descriptive of every disciple, how Jesus’ followers should treat those who are outside the faith, and why people love Jesus but can’t stand His followers.  In this 8-session study, Andy challenges us to change the name and reputation of Christianity by becoming a group of followers characterized by one thing – love.



Five Things God Uses to Grow Your FaithImagine what it would be like to have PERFECT faith. This 6-session study establishes the biblical case for five things God uses to grow BIG faith.





Faith, Hope, and LuckWhen our prayers are answered, our faith soars. When God is silent, it becomes harder to trust Him.  This 5-session study is guaranteed to transform your thinking about FAITH. You will discover the difference between faith and hope. Andy explains what we can expect of God every time we come to Him with a request.



Breakaway: Because You Didn't Set Out to be Just Like Everybody Else –  None of us sets out to be like everybody else, but it happens. Life begins to squeeze us into a mold until one day we wake up feeling trapped. This 6-session study is designed to renovate your thinking by exposing you to four core beliefs that have the power to change the trajectory of your life.  Breakaway illustrates how our core beliefs dictate our decisions, which dictate the outcomes of our lives.



FollowReligion says change and you can join us. Jesus says join us and you will change. Jesus doesn’t expect us to be perfect. He just wants us to follow Him.  In this 8-session study Andy uses the Gospels to explain Jesus’ teaching on what it means to follow.





How To Be Rich: It’s Not What You Have. It’s What You Do With What You HaveAndy is convinced that most of us are richer than we believe. We can be rich without knowing it, feeling it, or acting like it. This 4-session study encourages us to not just BE rich, but to learn to be GOOD at it!
